's the moderator, jim lehrer of pbs. he's done a dozen of these. and the rules, which he will announce at the start, give him broad leeway to guide the conversation and the debate. it is a cold room in denver. the campaigns wanted the temperature low. and it's not likely to stay that way once we get under way. both men have been prepping for days. this happens to be the obamas' 20th wedding anniversary. moments ago we saw a warm embrace between mrs. romney and mrs. obama. they both met each other at the front of the hall. their hiss, this is the first of three meetings debate style between these candidates. even though voting is under way in 34 states. we'll throw it to the moderator. >> good evening from the magness arena at the university of denver in denver, colorado. i'm jim lehrer of the pbs news hour, and i welcome you to the first of the 2012 presidential debates between president barack obama, the democratic nominee, and former massachusetts governor mitt romney, the republican nominee. this debate and the next three, two presidential, one vice presidential, are sponsored by the commission
, that that wasn't discussed? >> i would have liked for jim lehrer to talk about it because we are facing what our secretary of defense, president obama's secretary of defense has described as a devastating impact it our national defense if this sequestration goes through. for the benefit of our viewers, it was a biproduct of the select committee that didn't succeed. and so this draconian cuts in both defense and nondefense is supposed to take place on the first of january. it would devastate our defense. we need the president to come and sit down with us. we have said, mr. president, come and lead. you are the commandener chief. that's your most important responsibility. please, sit down with us. we can avoid this sequestration, which could devastate the defense of our nation. we really have asked him to do that. and his response has been that he would do that if we agree to raise taxes to start with. that's not the way bill clinton negotiated. that's not the way -- that ronald reagan negotiated. that's know the way i have ever negotiated. >> greta: you imagine president clinton, his name came up
. and i also thought that he almost tried to take over being the moderator. jim lehrer is one of the most respected journalists in our country. and certainly probably one of the most experienced moderators in presidential debates that we have seen, but it looked like governor romney was trying to take over his job, too, not just the president's. and it did not come across attractive, at least in my estimation. and i don't know that's what we want. there has to be respect. the president certainly gave it last night in my humble opinion. and i think that's what the american people want, more respect, nor appropriate decorum instead of saying it is your turn to talk when the moderator should control that. >> i don't think he concerned about jim lehrer's job over big bird, but i appreciate it. >>> this is a way for us to watch history, but last night millions of americans were watching history happen two screens at a time. twitter telling us the debate in denver was the most tweeted event in politics. over 10.3 million tweets had to do with the melee in the mile-high city. now the highest spi
at him. >> steve: he would look at jim lehrer like he is taking too much time. >> brian: i thought it was telling and you saw a guy that did one thing and i thought the b.b.c. katy k who never said anything nice about a republican. president obama has spent millions was dollars trying to show that governor romney was not worthy of being president. governor romney showed he was worthy and he is competent and all of that money was wasted to any of the 60 million who watched. >> steve: that's the beauty of seeing them side by side unfiltered and uninterrupt no commercials. in 30 second sound bites you can try to defend or define your opponent and that's what the president has done. last night, gretchen, when the president of the united states am mitt romney want to cut taxes for rich guys. mr. romney said mr. president, that is not the case. >> i know you and your running mate keep saying that and it is popular to say. but it is not the case. i have five boys and i am used to people saying something that is not always true and keep on repeating it and ultimately hoping i will believe
to relish the chance to go directly at the president during the debate moderated by the "newshour's" jim lehrer. >> mr. president, you're entitled to your own airplane and your own house, but not your own facts. look, i've got five boys. i'm used to people saying something that's not always true, but just keep on repeating it and ultimately hoping i'll believe it. i'm sorry, jim, i'm going to stop the subsidy to pbs. i'm going to stop other things. i like pbs, i love big bird. actually like you, too. but i'm not going to... i'm not going to keep on spending money on things to borrow money from china to pay for. >> woodruff: for his part, president obama did not bring up romney's now-famous "47-percent" comments, his record at bain capital, or his stances on immigration or abortion. but the candidates did cover a range of other issues, sparring repeatedly over tax cuts. the president singled out a bipartisan analysis that concludes the romney plan would cost $5 trillion over 10 years. >> i'm not looking for a $5 trillion tax cut. what i've said is i won't put in place a tax cut that adds
romney. >> thank you, jim. i appreciate the chance to be with the president. appreciate the university of denver and their welcome. congratulations to you, mr. president, on your anniversary. i am sure this is the most dramatic place you could imagine, here with me. so congratulations. [laughter] this is a tender topic. i have had the occasion over the last several years meeting people across the country. i was in ohio and a woman grabbed my arm, and she said, i have been out of work since may. can you help me? yesterday was a rally in denver. a woman came up to my wife with a baby in her arms and said, my husband has had four part-time jobs in three years. we have just lost our home. can you help us? the answer is yes, we can help. but it is going to take a different path. not the one we have been on, not the one the president describes as a top-down, cut taxes for the rich. that's not what i'm going to do. my plan has five basic parts. one, get us energy independent. that creates about four million jobs. number two, open up more trade, particularly in latin america. crack down on chi
% of the people we surveyed said romney won the debate. but moderator and pbs anchor jim lehrer might not feel the same way. >> i'm sorry, jim, i'm going to stop this subsidy to pbs. i'm going to stop other things. i like pbs. i love big bird. i actually like you, too. but i'm not going to keep on spending money for things to borrow money from china to pay for it. >> reporter: they will square off again october 16. bigad shaban, cbs news, denver. >> even people in california say romney won the debate last night. an exclusive poll of adults here in the golden state show 48% think governor romney won compared to 34% for president obama. 18% felt there was no clear-cut winner. >>> we would like to get a discussion going this morning. who do you think won round one of the presidential debates and why? comment on facebook, twitter or email us at mornings@cbs5.com. >>> we know the candidates in debates sometimes put spins on the facts to benefit their arguments. here are a couple of fact checks on last night's debate courtesy of the associated press. president obama suggested the u.s. will save mone
that trusts them and that's exactly what i'm going to do. >> could i respond to that, jim? this is a big issue. could we do another round on it? >> we're almost out of time. >> just briefly. when fdr established social security, they didn't call them ious, they called it the full faith and credit of the united states. if you don't have trust in that, i do. if you take it out of the surplus in the trust fund, that means the trust fund goes bankrupt in this generation within 20 years. >> this is a government that thinks a 2% rate of return on your money is satisfactory. it's not. this is a government that says younger workers can't possibly have their own assets. we need to think differently about the issue. we need to make sure our seniors get the promise made. if we don't trust younger workers to manage some of their own money with the social security surplus, to grow from $1 trillion to $3 trillion, it will be impossible to bridge the gap without it. what mr. gore's plan will do causing huge payroll taxes or major benefit reductions. >> new question. are there issues of character that disting

're not particularly exciting. i'm not sure this is going to be great television. and i think jim lehrer will keep it even keel as far as the performance itself. >> you prepared president bush. how tough is it to be sitting with the president of the united states and telling him, no, sir, you're doing this wrong. let's try it again. is it harder to prepare a president? >> well, a person that needs a team that's capable of doing that. and a good opponent which i think he has here. john kerry as his debate, you know, preparation opponent here, that can school him in these things. that i think is important and kerry's quite good. we saw that in 2004. he did quite well in all three of those debates but it should be sobering to romney that kerry did well in those debates but it was not decisive in the election. >> a challenger wins just by being on the stage with an incumbent president, but you have to be ronald reagan and do a there you go again and make something of that in the ensuing campaign and also outside events, obviously, iran, the hostage situation was fatally damaging to jimmy carter. but -

. jim acosta with me now from the romney campaign. the debate, of course, tomorrow night in denver, you, sir, are in littleton, colorado. should we take mitt romney at face value when he says this debate is not about me winning? >> reporter: well, brooke, i think this is all part of the debate expectations game that has been going on for several days now. i think you also sort of heard mitt romney downplay some of the talk that has been going on since the new york times reported over the weekend that, you know, mitt romney is preparing all the zingers for the debate and you heard people saying maybe he's not preparing zingers. a lot of this is the head fake to the head fake to the head fake. of course, mitt romney and the president are both probably working on lines of attack that they'll deliver at this debate. that is sort of standard operating procedure. you saw that scott brown, elizabeth warren debate last night in massachusetts. this is what campaigns do. this is what candidates do. but i will tell you that mitt romney has been behind closed doors for much of the day today, in deb
that has, right to the present in the 1890s during the jim crow era.

responsible for that. rece recently, jim -- our new poll, how do you feel strength of support, 72% of voters are strongly excited. that's a virtual tie and extremely or very enthusiastic about voting in november, 65% of republicans. 64% of democrats. does that worry you? in '08, part of the reason the president won was his people were way more enthusiastic than john mccain's. >> we heard enthusiasm on the republicans side last year and now it's down to turn out. people are voting right now. today. they're starting to vote tomorrow this ohio. our supporters are camped out at polling places and thousands more democrats voted in iowa last week than republicans. that's the way we've built this organization on the ground for the past 500 days. we're ip venvesting in a ground organization. >> we'll hit pause there, but going to be talking a lot to both of you in the next 30 some odd days and still to come, another campaign issue. taxing marijuana to fund schools. it could move the needle. on this presidential election. that is no joke. plus, violence in afghanistan rising as the war is winding dow

and instead listen to substance. i appreciate the fact athat jim lehrer asked questions about substance. i appreciated that i was able to ask obama about obamacare. i asked, why is it that the middle class is still buried in this country? why we have millions of people out of work? why is it that half of our children coming out of college cannot find a job? why is it that when he took office, 32 million people are on food stamps? i asked him those questions. you heard his answers. as a result of those answers, the american people recognize that he and i stand for something very different. i will help the american people get good jobs and a bright future. [cheers and applause] even more importance than what was happening in the past was what he plans on doing for the future. he had the chance to describe his vision for the future. what it was was more of the same. he described a series of ideas that we have heard before. he talks about a stimulus and hiring more government workers and having the government making investments. of course, he talks about raising taxes. they plan to raise taxes
manager jim mecina called romney a very skilled debater and in an open memo to interested parties, senior advisor david axelroad just as he was in the primaries, we expect mitt romney to be a prepared, disciplined, and aggressive debater. joining me now is someone who knows a thing or two about expectations and debates, republican senator john mccain. a little trip down memory lane there. >> i think both candidates are well prepared, and understandably, you'll see their sur gats lowering expectations. i don't know how our guy will compete, and that's part of the whole routine. >> who is the tougher debater? >> i think both are excellent in their own way. i think you could argue that mitt has had a lot more recent experience, obviously, but also, candy, part of it depends on who is moderating. >> oh, thanks. >> i don't want to put any pressure ow, but the tenor of the questions and all that are dictated. second of all, i think sometimes we expect a major breakthrough, you know, a comment. that doesn't happen very often. it happened with reagan and mondale. it happened with reagan and carte
